If I dare comment here again, I want to say that I don’t hear a recognisable difference in genre between SLTS and Room A Thousand Years Wide.

NO matter how you categorize a sub category. Music artists of the grunge era did not want to fit any certain label. They wanted freedom of expression .. so their music changed over the course of time. Kurt, of Nirvana saved earlier songs for later albums because he wanted those particular songs to fit with the album. I love the diversity that got categorized under the so-called "Alternative" label ...which seemed to be much of a fusion of everything (pop, country, folk, rock, psychedelic, punk, metal, etc.)

Yeah. This just isn't the same as this. And I could easily have picked WAY more diverse songs than those two.

That’s why we coined terms like Alternative Country, Alternative Dance, Alternative Metal, Britpop, Grunge, Noiserock, Shoegazing etc. to divide “Alternative” music into subcategories of similar-sounding music.

A good question in itself is, what is simply “Alternative Rock”?

Alice in Chains had one metal album...which was Facelift. The rest...with Staley anyway...was pure grunge.
I miss the comfort in being sad. Drive away and its the same, everywhere death row everyone’s a victim.
